Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GSW Too much plastic
This product would be outstanding if it weren't for all of the plastic. It needs a re-design to make it more durable. Not every job allows you to "go easy" with a weeder. It has to be durable in order to be useful. The plastic makes it super lightweight, which I suppose is great for those with back problems. Maybe that was the idea behind the product. However, the downside is that the product is best for occasional and light use, not more intensive jobs. I had an intensive job to do. After only one month of working with it, the plastic cracked and the four spikes would not clamp down together. See pics.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JOHN Awesome weed removal tool!
I have read all the reviews on weed removal tools and this appeared to be the best rated. My front yard was a mess with weeds, mostly dandelions, since I did not have time to weed & feed earlier. The Fiskars weed tool is a lifesaver. Not only was it easy to use, but it also saved my back from pain by not having to bend down to pull out the weeds. You simply place the tool over the weed, step down on the base and pull down on the handle. There is no effort and even the biggest weeds with 6 inch roots came out easily. I pulled out about 60 weeds within 15 minutes. This is the best gardening tool ever. I highly recommend it, especially for weekend gardeners.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by avidgardener Great until it breaks
Nice design - too bad they made it out of plastic/composite.
Its weak and un-able to do what its designed to do when broken.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TennesseeRetiree Great Tool !!
My wife wanted this uproot tool to extract broadleaf, crabgrass and other nasty weeds from our yard and lot by the lake. I didn't think it would be much, but for $25 I indulged her. Fact is, this thing works great with little effort. The ground has to be fairly soft, but she uprooted a wheelbarrow full of weeds the first time she used it. She also dropped a little grass seed into each hole after extraction. She says it's actually fun to use, and whenever she is happy, I'm happy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KYGardener FANTASTIC product!
Saw this product featured on an infomercial on a HG DIY channel. Unable to find it to purchase in store, so I purchased online. I have been thrilled with this product and use it often. The ease of use helps protect my back and allows me to weed my lawn and garden without aggravating my carpal tunnel syndrome. Also protects my fingernails from breaking. No more bending over or getting on my hands and knees to remove weeds from my lawn or garden!
I have also given as a gift and the recipients love it as much as I do. My son bought one for his elderly neighbors he saw using small tools weeding their lawn and garden on their hands and knees. They were so appreciative and have thanked him over and over for finding this nifty gadget to help them with their lawn and garden.
I have other Fiskars gardening tools, so I was thrilled to add another Fiskars product to my gardening toolbox.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LLP4 Love how fast I get weeds out of the yard!
Love how quickly I can get a large quantity of weeds with this tool. It makes pulling weeds fun (yes, I said it) and is easy on the back (super important).
Tip: Use it when it's damp out for easiest removal.
The only improvement I would suggest is to make the foot portion metal. While it's held up so far (a few months), I can see it breaking after years of use.
The only drawback is that you don't really want to use it in an area that has soaker hoses.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Slipkid Not disappointed at all.
If you're thinking about getting this tool , do it. Was skeptical purchasing the Fiskars only because I've never had luck pulling weeds. But I have other Fiskars products and they're always quality. Well let me tell you, I wish I had more dandelions to pull. They make weeding fun. What I couldn't believe was that I could not find this tool on any shelves. The only way to get it was online. I actually called Fiskars to tell them their product was not being stocked nor shown in any of the stores that said they carried it. I could increase sales 10 fold if they let me take over the account. This thing sells itself!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed Purchased twice, both broke immediately
Purchased this product once, it arrived without any tags and was just thrown in a box. It broke within 10 minutes. After returning it, another one was shipped, and that one broke within 15 minutes. Will try another brand.
